Cube - NATURE SL Allroad Crossbike
Versatile and lightweight crossbike!
At CUBE they don't do things by halves - and that applies to their bike designs too. The Nature SL Allroad is an all-season, all-weather bike that'll inspire you to get out and ride, whatever the conditions.
This way, a rainy commute in November can define two-wheeled freedom in just the same way as a weekend ride finishing at sunset on a mild summer's night. Don't believe CUBE? Check out the comfort-enhancing Suntour suspension fork, the full length mudguards - with integrated rear light - and the smooth, powerful hydraulic disc brakes. Combined with a comfortable, lightweight aluminium frame and the slick precision of Shimano's 3x10-speed transmission, there's really no reason not to ride. Great looks, great performance and great everyday practicality: that's the CUBE Nature SL Allroad.
CUBE's engineers set great store by safety and stability. That's why all their frames are certified and meet or exceed all their own extremely demanding test standards, verified by CUBE's in-house 24/7 testing lab. But they also understand that people who are always active and always out and about want more than just safety. That's why CUBE built the Nature SL Allroad's frame from high quality, double butted aluminium tubes - to save weight where it's not needed and provide a light, lively ride. Neat features like internally routed cables help reduce maintenance, while the exceptionally stiff 3D forged dropouts provide a supremely rigid anchor point for mounting a luggage rack. It appears you can have your cake and eat it, after all...
- Aluminium Superlite - Extremely high tensile strength heat-treated 6061 aluminium alloy is developed for the highest requirements. It is very stiff, fatigue resistant, corrosion resistant and has high elongation. CUBE Superlite tubes are double butted, giving very light tubesets with a high level of stiffness.
- Advanced Mechanical Forming - With the Advanced Mechanical Forming technology CUBE can mechanically transform different frame tubes and thus optimize them without material-wearing welding work for the respective requirements. Along the obtained organic look, the production method is primarily motivated by functional reasons. Multiple converted tubes enable CUBE to manufacture lighter and also stiffer aluminum frames.
- Smooth Welded - This elaborate procedure with doubled weld seams has two advantages: On the one hand, it improves the firmness of the weld seams and minimizes the load peaks on the tube welds through energy flow and on the other hand, it helps the frame to a better and more organic look due to the smooth and hardly noticeable welds.
- Easy Mount Kickstand - The Easy Mount Kick Stand is a new system developed and designed by CUBE. The base of the stand is mounted from below to a fitting plate integrated to the frame and fixed with a through bolt. This kick stand is extremely stiff and solid through the enlarged contact areas between base and frame which gives a stable stand even with loaded panniers.
- Frame Safe System - To protect CUBE's high-end aluminium frames from damage, they are built with the CUBE Frame Safe System replaceable derailleur hanger. The mounting thread is in the hanger and not in the frame as usual. In case of a crash, this hanger can be easily and quickly replaced by a new one.
- Integrated Cable Routing - Internally routed cables offer many advantages. Cables are protected from dirt for longer life, weight is saved thanks to the absence of external housing and the bike has a clean, sleek appearance.
- StVZO - CUBE Bikes with this labeling fulfill all legal requirements and meet all safety demands according to the StVZO German Road Traffic Licensing Regulations. Lighting systems and reflectors mounted are tested and certified accordingly. These bikes take into account every security-related detail to guarantee safe and relaxed mobility in traffic.
- Wet Paint Surface - On polished, brushed aluminium and all HPC frames, the logos and graphics are applied in multi-layer wet paint. CUBE use this surface treatment technology mainly to save weight.
